7 Careers That Pay You to Give Advice
Authors - Tag and Catherine Goulet founders of FabJob.com
Do friends frequently turn to you for advice? Do you enjoy offering suggestions or solutions to problems? Do you ever post your opinions online?
If your answer to any of these questions is "yes," why not consider a career that lets you earn a living giving advice?
Here are seven careers that give you the opportunity to get paid to do what you love. Each career description starts with an inspirational quotation from some of the best advice-givers in the world -- moms.
“I just want what’s best for you.” - Mom
As a business consultant you can get paid to give advice to business owners and executives. Business consultants meet with clients in companies and other organizations to identify business problems, then gather information and recommend solutions.
Some business consultants focus on a particular industry such as health care, while others specialize in areas such as marketing, human resources, technology, or small business.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that 28% of consultants do not have a degree, but you do need business-savvy and experience in the area you are consulting in.

"If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all." - Mom
If you would like to share your love of good manners with others, consider a career as an etiquette consultant.
Etiquette consultants give advice in one or more areas such as business etiquette, children’s etiquette, dining etiquette, international protocol, social etiquette, or wedding etiquette.
As an etiquette consultant you can offer individual consultations or group training programs on topics such as telephone skills for customer service staff. You can actually get paid to say “mind your manners” and “don’t talk with your mouth full.”

"Money does not grow on trees." - Mom
